If you live in a small apartment, a spacious loft or a home with an open floor plan, it’s likely that your home lacks a proper and formal dining room. Surprisingly enough, the lack of a dining room sometimes poses a decorating and designing problem for homeowners. Thankfully, there is a way to get around this dilemma.
Here are some tips from the trusted kitchen and bathroom remodeling professionals of Marcela Montoya Remodeling:
Use Area Rugs – If you’re establishing a dining area in your home to make up for the lack of a formal dining room, placing an area rug on the floor is one of the best ways to do so. Before that, however, make sure it’s the right size, meaning it should be bigger than the tabletop. That way, you’ll have your dining area and a place to set your tables and chairs.
Hang Artwork – Home remodeling pros say that well-placed art can help you create a colorful dining area in your home. If you have a large area to fill, make sure to hang artwork that’s big and bold to be the focal point, allowing you to firmly define that that part of the room is the dining area of your home. In a smaller space, on the other hand, framed paintings or prints above the table can help pull the room together.
Utilize Statement Lighting – Adding a statement lighting to an area in the room is another clever way to draw attention to the place you want as your dining area. The reason for this is because when the lights are turned on, they can illuminate the room easily. However, even when they’re turned off, they can still draw attention and act as a highlighted feature for your dining space.
Add a Bench – On the other hand, if your dining area has a square or rectangular table, you can easily set the area apart by swapping the chairs on one side with a bench or banquette. You can place them against the wall to create a space-saving nook or place a tall-backed bench or banquette if the table is positioned in the middle of the room.
